Do I need to pay $70 to use Sublime?

I am using the Sublime Text Editor, and apparently there is an option of paying 70$ versus using it for free. I want to use it for free, but will not paying 70 dollars put any limits on coding with sublime? For example, will I not be able to get it on the web or something like that?

Thanks For Answering!

I have used Sublime Text 2 for a while and the only advantage I have been able to find to paying the $70 is to stop the pop-up and to help the folks at Sublime of course for their great text editor.

Happy coding,


No worries, Sublime is absolutely free. If it ask you to pay just hit that cancel button, paying is optional.

Yep, agree :) Rather than make that alert with that annoying pop up, they could make a Donate alert : p

Shoudnt be this in general discussion or in business more likely?
